I showed how to turn a dress into a skirt yesterday. So today, I’m showing how to turn a dress into a top! This trick works best for more bodycon dresses, like this sequin number, which is one of my New Years Eve options. All you have to do is add a high-waist skirt with volume, like this A-line shape.
I toned down the sparkle with a jacket worn as a cape and black boots. Then added a pop of color with my handbag. Emerald was the color of 2013, so I’m trying to wear as much green as possible before everything becomes “radiant orchid” next year!
Plus, emerald is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. I’m in San Diego with my family. It’s been wonderful beaching with the dogs and eating non stop. Now I just have to decided what to wear Christmas Day. I’m thinking of some variation of this outfit. Follow me on Instagram at @sydnesummer to see my final decision. And for all of you who celebrate, Merry Christmas!
